Plant Disease 98 (6), 851-851
Abstract: During 2011 and 2012, plants of greater plantain or common plantain (Plantago major) grown in the Medicinal Plant Garden of the State University of Maringa in Paraná, Brazil died with the presence of white mycelium and sclerotia on the lower third of the plant. The fungus Sclerotium rolfsii was isolated. The identification was based on morphological characteristics and DNA sequence analysis. Pathogenicity of the isolates was demonstrated by inoculation and re-isolation.
